GW NCAA Tournament Central | 2018 NCAA Tournament Bracket

WASHINGTON - The Atlantic 10 Champion George Washington women's basketball team has earned a No. 14 seed in the Spokane Regional and will open the NCAA Tournament with a First Round game against No. 3 Seed Ohio State on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. ET at St. John Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Also competing at the site of the first-round matchup is No. 6 seed LSU and No. 11 seed Central Michigan. The winners of each game will meet in the second round on Monday.

GW earned its 18th all-time trip to the NCAA Tournament last weekend when it rattled off four wins over the course of the Atlantic 10 Championship, including upsets of No. 4 seed George Mason in the quarterfinals and No. 1 seed Dayton in the semifinals, punctuated with a rout of Saint Joseph's in the title game for its seventh A-10 tournament crown.

GW is 18-17 in its 18 all-time appearances in the NCAA Tournament. The Colonials have reached the Sweet 16 four times, including consecutive appearances in 2007 and 2008, and made an Elite 8 appearance in 1997.

Ohio State enters the NCAA Tournament with a 27-6 overall record and earned the automatic bid from the Big Ten by winning the conference tournament. The Buckeyes have won seven in a row, and 11 of their last 12 heading into Saturday's game, which will be the first-ever meeting between the schools.

Ticket information for the first and second round games will be available on GetGWTix.com at 12 p.m. ET on Tuesday, March 13.
